Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 has been very popular and fans have reacted positively to the latest installment of the game. The last thing we heard, was that they had managed to ship over 2.5 million copies of the game at launch, and now Capcom has an even larger goal in mind.
During a recent Q&A the company had with investors, it came out that Capcom is hoping that they will be able to sell as many as 10 million units of the game. They might just do it.
The company believes that they have a great start, and based on previous sales of older Resident Evil titles, they believe Resident Evil 7 could hit the 10 million mark. They may be right. We will have to wait and see.
Capcom says that, “The lifecycle for games is growing longer, driven by ongoing digital sales; as a result, Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 have each sold more than 7.5 to 10 million units cumulatively (including catalog and re-release sales). As such, we will work to achieve 10 million cumulative lifetime unit sales for Resident Evil 7 as well.”
It should be noted that none of the Resident Evil titles have hit this mark yet, with the best-seller of the franchise being Resident Evil 5 which sold 7.2 million copies. We will see.
